Scripture: 2 Corinthians 9:8
God has the power to provide you with more than enough of every kind of grace. That way, you will have everything you need always and in everything to provide more than enough for every kind of good work.
Thought for the Day: What does it mean to be on the receiving end of “more than enough of every kind of grace”? First, are there multiple graces? Or do we experience grace differently depending on our life experience or current need? I’m not absolutely sure of the answer, but it appears that however grace is given, it is given with a goal. It is the energy, the drive behind “every kind of good work.” Grace, as the unconditional and relentless love of God made real in Jesus, is the gift that not only transforms us as recipients, but is purpose-giving and motivationally-inspiring. Once you glimpse the immensity of God’s grace, you realize that not only is everyone else included in this gift, but as one who joyously knows it, you want others to experience it firsthand. And sadly, you don’t need to look far to find an opportunity to offer a good work. You are loved beyond measure, so now prepare yourself to be guided wherever this good news might lead you.
Prayer: Continue to encourage my life with every kind of grace, O God, for the work that needs to be done among those who struggle to know they are wonderfully loved. Amen.
